what did you get before the lift?
I drive a lot slower and easier on the throttle now with the tires/lift. When I was stock my BEST mpg trip was around 21 mpg all hwy w/cruise control and no a/C. Now that same trip is 18 mpg.

So with the tires/lift I've lost a solid 3 mpg.

8ish of lift on 35's. I get 12 or so city. and only like 13 at 65+ highway.
I think the 35's have more to do with it that the lift.

before i put the calmini 5" incher on, i averaged a little over 400 miles to the tank with aboot2 gallons left when filling up. that was with the prg spacer lift and stock tires. now with the 5 inch lift iget about 300 miles to a tank with 33 inch mud terrains. what i really hate is having to down shift on the big hills.

Jesus, I cannot believe I am the first...

IT IS THE TIRES, not the lift.

My truck got the exact same pre-lift as it did post-lift until I put on new tires.

Stock tires are superlight tires...just replacing those cruddy rubbers with some real meat in the same size costs you 25% weight penalty in rotating mass.

I'm in the same boat. I got 19-20 MPG on the highway before and after the lift...When I put on 285/75's It dropped to about 17-18 MPG's but My speedo is off now so it's not as bad as it looks because I still fill up my take once every two weeks just like before.
